GOP Leadership Elections
I released the following statement after Republican House members voted to elect Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) as Minority Leader and Steve Scalise (R-LA) as Minority Whip for the 116th Congress:
Based on hard work and a strong belief in the American people, the efforts of House Republicans have led to a booming economy, more jobs, higher wages, and real tax relief for American families, workers and small businesses.
We delivered on tax cuts and regulatory relief just as we promised, and I look forward to working with Leader McCarthy and Whip Scalise to stop Pelosi and House Democrats from raising taxes and bringing back burdensome regulations, and to fight any abuse of power in their efforts to undermine President Trump. It is my hope that my Democrat colleagues will chose to govern and that we can find common ground on providing more tax relief to Middle Class Americans, enact real retirement reform, and alleviate the burden that the Windfall Elimination Provision places on our hard-working public servants.
